About the Community Minibus Service

A common need brought our customers, The MS Society Darlington and the Rotary Club of Darlington together to fundraise for a minibus. 

The result is an accessible, low-cost Minibus for use by the community, enabling individuals to access much needed transport to enjoy trips, excursions and attendance to events.

The bus is available for both Age UK North Yorkshire & Darlington customers, as well as Not-for-profit Community Groups within Darlington.

Who can drive the minibus?

Drivers must be registered as volunteers of Age UK Darlington and be willing to undertake checks as appropriate. Drivers must hold a valid license to drive a 17 seater minibus. If you do not have a driver available, an Age UK North Yorkshire & Darlington Driver can be arranged for a small fee.
